»Bayer's dialogue with Luther and his theology, the mature fruit of forty years of intensive and extensive wrestling with Luther's works in relation to modern theology and culture, provides the best one volume study of Luther's thought now available.«
Carter Lindberg, Professor Emeritus, School of Theology, Boston University
»Few Luther scholars are more accomplished, and still fewer more influential, than Tübingen's Oswald Bayer. In this wide-ranging overview of the theology of Martin Luther, B. leads the reader skillfully through a comprehensive survey of the most important, and often confusing, themes in Luther's theology. In the process, he demonstrates Luther's continuing relevance, including some of his potential contributions to contemporary theology. [...] it is important once again to emphasize the immense erudition and analytical depth reflected in this superb volume. This is an essential contribution to the field of Luther studies, one that scholars should now consult as a matter of course. All of us who continue to find Luther fascinating are very much in the author's debt.«
Mickey L. Mattox in Theological Studies 2006, p. 189f.
